Someone meets someone.
That’s how everything starts.
A single encounter can change everything.
That’s why we build products that acknowledge the power of relationships,
And use live data and new technology to help understand them.
So people can see not just who they’re connected to,
But also who they should be.
Our goal is simple: to map every connection in the world.
And like anything worth doing, that also begins with an introduction:
Hello. We’re Sansan.
The Japanese word san, along with words like arigato and konnichiwa, are among the few Japanese words recognized around the world. San, a title the Japanese add to someone’s name to show respect, like Mr. or Ms. in English, is a word that is a symbol of a person.
At Sansan, we change business cards (which themselves are symbols of business encounters) into a resource, and by connecting two people, a san and a san, we aim to change the way the world works.
Then, just as the word san has spread from Japan to the rest of the world, we also want to create a new value that can spread and change the world. That is the idea behind our name.
